Artist’s Statement

Painting has been a double joy for me because it combines my love for nature with my creative spirit.  I try to blend visual rhythm, the effects of light, and an impressionistic color palette to capture the mood of a location.  I feel very fortunate to live in an area that gives me so much inspiration.  My landscapes are a reflection of the beautiful countryside, rolling hills, mountains, lush vegetation and the radiant colors of Virginia. 

"Art depends on men dedicated to nature" -- Francis Bacon
